Do they fit over the existing plastic protection for radiator or do I remove them? Just curious before I start putting them on tomorrow. I have a set of aluminum guards handy but I was going to ship them to the states for my RD03. I'll keep them here if they are needed. Thanks

Sorry for having a first post with a request for help. I'm on holiday in Wales and my fuel pump is acting wierd. It stops pumping suddenly or sometimes directly after starting. A restart helps and thats how i came from...
I need a new o-ring for my fuel petcock. Rather than order an original honda part which will take a couple days to me (and possibly bug the honda place where I just picked up what I actually needed via another order), I was just going to source a generic o-ring for this tomorrow, then I can...

That way it's going to be more easily readable than by inserting a few random images on here.
So, to date I've managed to write up the first half of the journey covering North Wales...
